Nicki Minaj wants to set the record straight on a few things. The current “American Idol” judge talked about her perspectives on some issues in which tremendous question resides.
When asked what was behind her second collaboration with the MAC, she stated that it was a match made in heaven, given her top selling cosmetics: “I had the No. 1 top selling Viva Glam lipstick of all time,” she said proudly. “So I figured, hey, let’s give it a whirl again!”
She admitted that she is undergoing a makeover and is always into fresh and innovative cosmetic looks: “This was different for — it was the first time I wasn’t in pink! It’s all coming together with my new, different look for 2013. It’s just a little more grown and sexy, and less is more.”
Now don’t get it twisted. Despite rumors, Minaj has never had surgery on her face: “When people see my makeup, they think all sorts of crazy things I’m doing to my skin … they see contouring and they think I had surgery on my nose. It’s just makeup!” she said. “Watch ‘RuPaul’s Drag Race’ and you’ll see how you can make your nose look whatever shape you want! I’ve never had surgery on my face. It’s makeup! Come on, people!”
As it is well known, Minaj is not a fan of Mariah Carey, fellow judge on “American Idol”, the hit show that is in search for the next singing superstar. According to an interview Minaj gave to the New York Post, Minaj says that she and Carey are there to simply find the best talent and not become BFFs: “All of that has been talked about. We had our differences, but it is all done with now, and we just get in there and do our job.” Minaj is a judge on the show alongside Carey as well as music mogul Randy Jackson and country superstar Keith Urban.
